The awards are decided by an industry advisory panel comprised of leading analyst firms and consultants covering the wholesale transaction banking markets, including Celent, TowerGroup and Bloor. They commend those banks and IT vendors that are shaping the delivery of business solutions in the financial services industry.
Judging criteria focused on product innovation over the last 12 to 18 months, cost effectiveness of solutions in terms of implementation and deployment, potential business benefits, ease of implementation and the ability to tackle specific business issues or problems.
Commenting on the award, Alun Baker, managing director and senior vice president, EMEA at DataSynapse said, âWe are honoured to be recognised by such an authoritative panel for our commitment to innovation and for delivering business value to our customers. Thirty-five of the top forty European banks have chosen DataSynapse software to standardise their approach to deploying, activating, and managing applications in real-time environments. Awards such as these validate our vision to create more dynamic IT environments that better serve the business.â
Full coverage of the Leaders in Innovation Awards will be published in the Q4 edition of Financial-i.
